I had a different title in mind today until I updated WordPress to version 2.7. I’ve done many WordPress upgrades, but unbeknown to me they planned to change the user interface with this version. Boy have they ever! I sort of like the change (unlike Flickr’s) but it’s taken me a little time to figure out how to write a new post.
Rain Rain Go Away
Seriously, why must we have so much rain in such a short time period? I know, we need the rain. However, we need the rain spread out among many days so that it doesn’t just run off into the streams and rivers.
Holy Taco! I Managed To Eat Vegetarian Last Night
Late in the afternoon yesterday I caught wind of a group of Tweeters meeting up at East Atlanta’s Holy Taco. Lo and behold, I was one of the invitees so I naturally jumped on the opportunity (this is me trying to widen my social network). My only quandary was that it was to be a vegetarian day and I knew that the menu of Holy Taco contained many delicious-sounding meaty options.
However, in a strange moment of discipline I managed to stay vegetarian. I ordered some chips and salsa, and my dinner consisted of a vegetarian quesadilla and an order of tostones. Sadly the Holy Taco was still out of Fuller’s London Pride beer, and I drank them out of Tetley’s last night as well.

The eye has it!
My optometrist has a Canon 20D set-up that allows him to take a photo of the inside of one’s eyes. Cool. He had this last year as well and I didn’t think to blog about it. Because I mentioned that I have an interest in photography he offered to email me one of the photos.
Because I am squeamish I’m only showing the thumbnail size in case anyone else out there is as squeamish as I.
If you wish to see this photo larger, click the thumbnail and it will take you to the larger version on Flickr.
Top Chef: I Don’t Know Because I Fell Asleep
It’s only one week into my life without a DVR and I’ve already had my first FAIL.
I arrived home from Holy Taco shortly before 10:00pm and thought about going straight to bed. A few minutes later I remembered that it was Wednesday night and I no longer had a DVR to record Top Chef. I popped out of bed and joined the program already in progress as they were crowning the winner of the Quick Fire Challenge.
I continued to watch, including suffering through commercials, for another twenty minutes or so… before I fell asleep. When I awoke the show was ending and I had no way to watch what I missed. Well I had one way, as Bravo replays Top Chef at 11:00pm Eastern, but there was no way that I was going to stay up and watch.
I have a feeling that I am going to be watching a lot less television now that I have no dvr. You know, this might be one of the best things to happen to me in a long time.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…

Website Of The Day – Since I’m showing a photo that I didn’t shoot, I’ll pick a website that contains a ton of photos I didn’t shoot. Google has archived the photos of (the now defunct) Life Magazine. (thanks to Barb for alerting me to this)
